Rainwater Harvesting

Extreme Makeover Home Edition


Location: Tucson, Arizona
Project: Rainwater Harvesting System and Gutters


Extreme Makeover Home Edition Tucson

This project was for the popular ABC show Extreme Makeover Home Edition and was a joint effort for the city of Tucson. Many companies came together to make this happen. SARG provided all of the rain gutter systems and rain harvesting tanks. This house has header boxes with PVC pipes as downspouts. This allows the water to be transferred underground via a "wet system". The water is being diverted to 2 steel pipe cisterns that are 4 feet diameter by 6 feet tall. The two tanks are set up with standard hose bibs a concrete base and a dome metal lid to keep sunlight and mosquitoes out.
